@mbun See and that happens. I feel like I play play tested my level a ton. However, I did do it all in one day and I was pretty excited to upload my first level ever.
The only solution is for them to offer some form of re-editing a level.
At least making minor adjustments would be cool, but I am sure that would be hard to implement. What could they limit?
Plus if the level is reuploaded it may not get the pickup that it had before. Not really a happy medium either way. I will just have to playtest my levels more than once before uploading.
@axel Hearing that it's not a rouge like makes me feel so much better about it. I was terrible at the first game, and I often enjoy rouge likes, but I just got stuck in the original NecroDancer. Acquiring items and keeping them is what I was hoping for, glad to hear you enjoyed it.
Shovel Knight was actually the first 2D platformer I played in a long time when it released. Like most people who are EZA fans, the Allies influenced me to play it. I saw a stream of Brad playing it and I instantly bought it.
It is one of my favorite games of all time now, which says a lot because my list is pretty definitive based on experiences at the time of playing those games. It is a challenging game at first, but once you understand the best attacks during certain moments, then its such an enjoyable experience. After completing the game (and going for all upgrades) I started playing other 2D platformers. The hype right now is metroidvania and there are tons out their now for you to choose from.
Not sure what you were looking for in this post but I hope my experience helps you!
P.S Personal opinion: Kratos level is cool, but not a good enough reason to get the game just because it requires some play time.
